Second Sunday of Lent


Home

 

Genesis 12: 1-4a; 2 Timothy 1:8b-10; Matthew 17:1-9. In the Book of Genesis, Abram makes an act of faith in God and goes to where he has called him to journey. Paul tells of the strength to bear hardship that comes from God. In today’s Gospel, Peter, James, and John are present for the Transfiguration of our Lord.

 


Domenica 2A Di Quaresima

La vita è un cammino verso una mèta. Ciascuno porta nel cuore aspirazioni, progetti e ideali a volte confusi. Per perseguirli e realizzarli si cercano presenze significative, qualche segno che indichi la direzione. La vita cristiana è posta sotto il segno della tentazione e Dio può sembrare lontano, assente. Il silenzio di Dio può suscitare smarrimento e sconcerto. Chi ha scelto Dio e si fida di lui sa che la sua vita avrà un esito positivio.

 

 

 

 


From the Pastor's Computer 

The second reading for the 2nd Sunday of Lent begins: “Bear your share of the hardship for the gospel with the strength that comes from God.”  We are reminded that Christians throughout the world, especially in the Middle East, are sharing in the hardship of the Gospel with persevering courage and strength that can come only from God.  Here is news from the Salesians working in Aleppo, Syria taken from the Salesian News Service on January 6, 2014:

The civil war in Syria continues to destroy homes and human lives. People continue to live in complete insecurity due to frequent explosions or gunfire or mortar bombs. Now a boy from the oratory has been mortally wounded.

On Friday 3 January, at 2.30 p.m., while the young people were waiting for the bus to come to the Oratory for Catechism class, two mortar bombs fell at the Midan bus-stop near Aleppo. Many of the young people who attend the Salesian Oratory come from that area. Some of the young people from the Oratory were injured and were accompanied by the Salesians to the hospital. One of them had a splinter in his head which was removed. Sadly, another boy, a primary school student of sixth grade was killed. His name was Jack Salloum.  In the 34 months of war in Syria, 11,000 children have died, victims of a cruel and absurd war.

Many of the Christians, targeted by some of the rebel militias, have already left Aleppo, fled to calmer districts and towns, or left Syria all together. There are no jobs, no security, and an ever-increasing danger to life and of loss of religious liberty for especially the Christian segment of the population.

Pray that the courageous Salesians, who have remained behind to offer their support and assistance, be safe in protecting the remaining Christians, taking care of the young and the poor, preaching tolerance, forgiveness, and love for the Lord has “saved us and called us to a holy life.”

–Fr. John Itaina, SDB

Sad News: Fr. Jerry Bonjean, SDB: We are very sorry to have to report the passing of our dear Fr. Jerry Bonjean. Fr. Jerry, who was born and raised right here in North Beach, served as pastor of Saints Peter and Paul for a number of years, and of course all over our Salesian Province. He was a kind and gentle priest, beloved by the parishioners and students, and he had many, many friends and admirers. Our thoughts and prayers are with Fr. Jerry’s sister Madelyn and his brother Paul. From Fr. Jerry's obituary in the San Francisco Chronicle:

"Jerry grew up in the shadow of SS Peter and Paul Church which was the center of the family's life. His early education, his early sacramental and educational life were in the parish and the Salesian Boys Club. Jerry Bonjean graduated from St. Ignatius high school in 1955.

Jerry Bonjean professed a Salesian in 1957, received a B.A. in philosophy at Don Bosco College, Newton, N.J. in 1961 and after studying theology in Italy was ordained a priest in 1967. Further education included studies at USF and the Vatican II Institute, Menlo Park.

His priestly ministry followed in Salesian schools, parishes, and formation assignments in Watsonville, Richmond, and in southern California at Rosemead and Bellflower.  Notably at SS Peter and Paul parish in San Francisco he was religious superior, Vicar and Pastor, 1988-1993;  1997-2003 Donations in his memory may be sent to the Salesian Province Residence, 1100 Franklin St, San Francisco, CA  94109"

The Funeral Mass will be on Monday, March 17, at 10:00AM. Fr. Jerry will rest with his brother Salesians in the cemetery at Salesian High School in Richmond.

Choose Life! “Every human life is precious in God’s sight and no effort should be spared in the attempt to promote throughout the world a genuine respect for the inalienable rights and ignity of individuals and peoples everywhere.” — Pope Benedict XVI, Letter to Cardinal Dolan on the Occasion of the 10th Anniversary of the Somber Events of September 11, 2001


 

 

From the Catechism: Why was Christ transfigured on the mountain? The Father wanted to reveal the divine glory of his Son even during Jesus’ earthly life. Christ’s Transfiguration was meant to help the disciples later to understand his death and Resurrection.

Three Gospels relate how Jesus, on the mountaintop, begins to shine (is ‘transfigured’) before the eyes of his disciples. The voice of his heavenly Father calls Jesus his ‘beloved Son’, to whom they are supposed to listen. Peter would like to ‘make three booths’ and capture the moment. Jesus, however, is on the way that leads to suffering. The vision of glory is only to strengthen his disciples. (YOUCAT questions 93-94)

Choose Life! “Marriage needs to be strengthened, not redefined. Cohabitation, divorce, and contraception all erode marriage’s meaning as a public, total, lifelong, and fruitful communion of persons between husband and wife. The latest challenge to marriage, the proposal that sexual difference doesn’t matter, removes the very basis of marriage’s meaning as a one-flesh communion, open to children, making the definition of marriage in law (and thereby culture) open to limitless variation and ultimately meaningless.” –United States Conference of Catholic Bishops “Marriage: Unique for a Reason. One Man, One Woman, For Life.”

Pray for the Defense of Marriage and Supreme Court Justice: The USCCB's bulletin insert asking us to pray for the defense of marriage can be downloaded here.


More Choose Life: “Federal law had been generous in protecting the rights of individuals and institutions to act according to their religious beliefs and moral convictions. But political forces are now injecting themselves into the lives of Catholics and Church organizations, sub-stituting their own secular ideology for the Church’s beliefs.

Some say the Church should leave politics alone and concentrate on teaching the faith and serving the needy. But what if the State says the Church may not follow her teachings, even in her own institutions? What if the State limits the Church’s ability to serve the needy? What if it says a Catholic nurse has no right to her livelihood because she will not help perform abortions? What if the Church cannot act on her teaching that marriage is a union of one man and one woman?” -United States Conference of Catholic Bishops Bulletin Insert on Life, Marriage, and Religious Liberty.

USA Today had a very good interview with His Excellency earlier this year.

“Becoming Towers of Strength” Project & Slideshow: It has cost $2.5 million for our tower reinforcement and restoration. In order to cover the cost, the parish had to take out a loan of $1.8 million. Given the dangerous condition of the towers, we had to move immediately to take care of the problems even though we did not have sufficient funds. By the end of this week every parishioner should have received a brochure in the mail describing how you can help. Please visit

http://www.sspeterpaulsf.org/church/towers.html

to see a slideshow depicting the dangerous situation and the repairs made. You will find it eye-opening. There is also a link on that page for online donations in support of the project. “Becoming Towers of Strength” is the duty of this generation of Saints Peter and Paul parishioners, and it is really a project we can be proud of!

The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola have helped many to fulfill their desire to grow in knowledge and love of Jesus and so to follow him in greater freedom. Ignatius planned that the complete Exercises (sometimes offered as a 30-day silent retreat) also be offered as a retreat in everyday life, extended over six months or more. In following this form, the retreatant meets with an individual director weekly and prays an hour and a half daily. Doing the Exercises entails a serious commitment of both time and energy and is appropriate for those already cultivating a generous life of prayer and in regular spiritual direction. If you have an interest in doing the complete Spiritual Exercises in everyday life, our staff would be happy to help you to discern the Spirit’s call and will recommend a director when that is timely. Please contact Fr. Tom Carroll (tcarroll@jrclosaltos.org) at The Jesuit Retreat Center of Los Altos for more information.


Marriage Matters to Kids! Proposition 8 forced us to confront important questions, that retain their importance even though the election is over.

What is the meaning of Marriage?
Do Children have a fundamental right to a Mother and a Father?
Do Mothers matter? Do Fathers matter?
Does natural marriage benefit society?
If so, what are the dangers of redefining marriage?
What about equality, and the dignity of the homosexual person?

Watch the video below, and listen to Catholic bishops and priests, (including a charming episode with SSPP’s own Fr. Armand Oliveri!) marriage counselors, lawyers, and people just like you, describe what marriage means and why we are called to protect it. Visit www.MarriageMattersToKids.org

Struggling with Same-Sex Attraction? You are NOT alone and the Church has not abandoned you! Visit the COURAGE website. "COURAGE" is an apostolate of the Church that ministers to those struggling against this particular temptation. They have been endorsed by the Pontifical Council for the Family and our beloved John Paul II said of this ministry, "COURAGE is doing the work of God!"

Struggling with Pornography Addiction? You also are not alone! Pornographic websites are by far the largest segment of the web.

A new Catholic apostolate, the Serenellians (www.pornnomore.com), is trying to help those caught in the grips of pornography addiction. The Serenellians get their name from Alessandro Serenelli, who killed St. Maria Goretti in a fit of lust and later repented.

“If a man so seemingly wicked, decadent and corrupt as Alessandro Serenelli can receive the fullness of conversion and salvation from Almighty God, then so can each and every like soul caught up in the snares of this insidious evil.”

You can visit their website by clicking on the logo to the left, and there is a good story about them on California Catholic Daily.
